Sonny Gray Strikes Out 8 In Match With Orioles, Picks Up 5th Consecutive Win For Oakland A’s

OAKLAND (CBS/AP) — Sonny Gray struck out eight to win his fifth consecutive decision, and the Oakland Athletics pounded the Baltimore Orioles 10-2 on Sunday.

Gray (11-3) gave up two runs, one earned, two hits and two walks in 6 2-3 innings. The 24-year-old right-hander hasn’t lost since June 13 at the New York Yankees.

The major-league best A’s (61-37) overpowered the AL East-leading Orioles (53-44) in the final regular-season meeting between the playoff-contending clubs. Oakland had 15 hits, chasing starter Kevin Gausman (4-3) in the fifth before beating up Baltimore’s bullpen the rest of the way.

Eric O’Flaherty tossed 1 1-3 scoreless innings and Sean Doolittle pitched a perfect ninth to help Oakland finish 4-2 against the Orioles with its most impressive performance of the series.
